Naweed’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Fuck Alfred Hitchcock”
This was a fresh look into the vibrant west coast Oakland area, while also seeing the dark and dangerous parts of the Golden State area.
The movie gets deep and suspenseful but still packs the laughs like the quote above. Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal’s bromance and chemistry was as good as their writing. Love the unspoken theme of a changing city and it’s people in the background. The flashbacks and threat of the cops were nerve inducing though.
